Flower, fruit and vegetable portraits created by Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526 -1593)

Carrot + Trousers = Professor

(formula by the Futurist Poet of National Record Farfa)

A raw carrot standing upright, with the thin part at the bottom, where two boiled aubergines are attached with a toothpick to look like violet trousers in the act of marching. Leave the green leaves on the top of the carrot to represent the hope of a pension. Eat the whole thing without ceremony!

(Futurist Cookbook)
